About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit is designed to explore key concepts associated with the teaching of the English Key Learning Area in the K-6 years, set in the broader context of a contemporary new literacies environment. It will examine the processes involved in the teaching of oracy and reading with a focus on traditional print-based literacies and multiliteracies. Students will investigate the teaching and learning of oracy and reading of a range of factual and literary texts, involving every day and specialised knowledge for a range of readers/viewers. Students will be introduced to the use of children’s literature and authentic texts for the development of students’ reading skills and abilities. Students will develop skills in pedagogy and practice within the area of K-6 English.
